Happy St. Patrick's Day. Did it rain chocolate gold coins at your house? It did at mine. Today's technique uses the glitter tape that you can get for Free during Sale-a-Bration with your $60 order (before shipping and taxes). I took the white glitter tape and with my sponge dauber I coloured it Garden Green and Old Olive. Just look how it sparkels in the sun. This is a fabulous product if you love glitter but don't like all the mess that goes along with it.

Love glitter, but hate the mess? Try the new Metallics Glitter Tape. You can get this great new product free during Sale-a-Bration with your $60 order (before shipping and taxes). To learn more watch this video and come back tomorrow to see a card I made using this product.
Today's card is inspired by my kids who have been tring to catch a tricky little leprechaun lately; and we all know that it is the leprechaun who hides his pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. So if you have not made a St. Patrick's Day card, what are you waiting for, here is a card that you can make using the rainbow of colours you have on hand.
Today's project was designed by fellow demonstrator Susan Easter. It uses the stampin' markers and blender pen to colour in the fabulous card. I had a customer that saw this card and wanted to learn how to do it, so we made this card with a group of her friends.

Have you heard? Shannon West, Stampin' Up!'s Training Manager, is "bringing birthdays back" with her own #imbringingbirthdaysback movement.
You can join the movement too! Send your friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, etc., handmade birthday cards and tag them with the #imbringingbirthdaysback stamp (item 143573). This single wood mount stamp was released on Tuesday March 1st, as limited availability, and sold out in 4 hours, with such a demand Stampin' Up! will be making more and will be available shortly.
Today's technique features embossing folders. I used the hexagon embossing folder to emboss the card stock, plus a bunch of the Cherry of Top paper stack DSP. I then cut out the small inside hexagons from the DSP so they were the size I needed and glued them into the embossed background. Since this was a Birthday card for my husband I thought it was fitting to include some of the "wood spaghetti" he was creating, rather than use some ribbon or twin. I think it added a bit more of a masculine touch too.
